Inspired Fridays: Generosity

Inspired Fridays is a weekley meme hosted by my friends over @ INKK Reviews They love to showcase what inspires fellow book bloggers...projects we have done, sweet libraries or book nooks, etc. Here is my inspiration for the week... :)

Generous...benevolent, charitable, honorable, kindhearted, thoughtful, unselfish.

All of the above define the incredible people I've met within the book blogging community.  When I started book blogging, I didn't even know there was a "community".  (I know...you can laugh...)

Truly, I continue to be blown away by the generosity of others.  Collectively, you all give SO much...time, advice, resources, experience, gifts, wisdom, friendship, respect, patience, humor, gratefulness, kindness...honestly I could go on and on and on and... :)

I blog for two reasons.  
  • I love to read and enjoy sharing my opinions (hoping others find them helpful)  
  • In some small way, I want to help my high school library.  I donate every book I receive to the library...and BASK in the students' enjoyment of the books.  Honestly, it's so addicting to me.  NOTHING compares to a teenager lighting up at the sight of a book that intrigues them.  
Yesterday I received a package - a gift from a give-away I entered last month at The Book Monsters - a beautiful calligraphy set and a copy of Philippa Gregory's Changeling (pictured below).  I can't wait to get this book on the shelf!!!!!!!

All YOUR generosity is enabling ME to give something back...to "pay it forward"...and for that I am eternally grateful :)

So...a heart-felt THANK YOU to all you wonderful GENEROUS souls out there.  Always remember what a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE you make to so many people.  You are appreciated :)

Have a wonderful weekend!!  ~Amie Beamer
